Simply Charming

So today's gift idea is the idea of a running charm bracelet. Personally, I would make a charm into a necklace, but there are a lot of choose from and if charm bracelets are your thing, I have links to many running charms! First off Wyvern Running has a huge selection of charms to choose from, including the three below.

They are pretty inexpensive and sentimental as well. Even put on a necklace they would be cute as well. Also Two Roads Fitness has a section of just running jewelery that include some already made necklaces at great prices as well. Wearing a necklace that reminds you daily what your goal is, or what you've accomplished is a great way to remember your hard work and training. Also by giving this gift to a runner, it shows that you recognize their accomplishments.
Here are some more charming links :
Finish line charms - Really cute and really different looking charms. Key chains, necklaces and even ornaments!
Crafting and Jewelery - Custom Marathon -Personalized and unique
Zulumoon - Running Charms - Really cute shoes charms
My Triathlon Jewelry - Really cute pendants and a super cute I heart running key chain seen below

Glad you all seem to be enjoying the list thus far. Don't worry I have many more random and great tricks up my sleeve. Tonight I'm going for a little jog to keep loose for the race this weekend... Gotta keep the mileage up even in the dark!

How do you FIND this stuff!? This is awesome, thank you so much!
Also, thank you for your kind words after my hilariously slow 5-mile "race" - I am slowly coming back from my post-illness paranoia (i was sure more exercise would cause a relapse, lol)! I have my fingers crossed for you this weekend - you will do GREAT! :)

I get my charms from MARATHONCHARMS.COM
if anyone is interested

I have made a bracelet and I have a charm on there for each marathon I've completed.

LOVE IT TOO. And it is a great conversation piece. And you can keep track of which marathons you've completed!

These companies should start sponsoring/paying you for these free plugs.

Have you seen this site?

Denise said...

Now I'm bummed Andy and I decided not to exchange gifts. Maybe I'll treat myself to a necklace instead of my ugly finishing photo!

*aron* said...

Marlene said...

LOVE these! I have the 26.2 and wear it as a necklace. My girlfriend presented it to me just minutes after finishing my first marathon. :)

Marathon Maritza said...

Cute ideas!!! I'm loving all the gifts you're posting...although, doesn't that girl charm look a little like she's doing the Macarena? :-P

joyRuN said...

Sweet heavens - I LOVE shopping with you :)
